The further I got with decorating this Christmas was to throw up the tree and set up our Christmas village. Without faded and outdated decorations, I have lost the will to spend the time to decorate. When I saw the new PartyLite Holiday Collection, I began dreaming of a beautifully decorated and modern holiday home.
You may have been to a PartyLite party before. The company allows independent sellers to start their own business by throwing parties to show off the amazing collections offered by this home decor' and candle company. By hosting a PartyLite party, you have the opportunity to earn free products. The more people you invite to your party, the more items are purchased which means you can update your house at practically no cost! PartyLite offers so many fabulous candle products to include warmers, accessories and reed diffusers in fantastic designs. Placing a few of these items can not only update your decor', but your house will also be smelling amazing. Their Winter/Spring catalog was just released on December 16th and it had me drooling!
